  • High and hill place.. Any time cloudy, cood and chilling weather🌍☀⛅☁💧⚡❄... Winter time means snow fell... Most beautiful place I never seen..
  • Extremely windy and very chilling. Almost always cloudy atmosphere. Very very beautiful to experience clouds passing by your body. Take entry fee of a hundred Ngultrum tickets per person to climb up to the temple and experience the mesmerising natural scenery. No photography allowed inside. One of the rooms inside the temple prohibits ladies to enter as per rituals, but one may take a view of the same.
